Celebrating the Year of the Rabbit—Rabbits on .ART
In celebrating the year of the rabbit, .ART is highlighting some of the artworks of rabbits on .ART users’ websites.
From the White Rabbit that manages to be perpetually late in Alice in Wonderland, to the mystical jade rabbit that accompanies Chang’e on the moon in Chinese folk tales, the rabbit is one of the most iconic creatures in art and culture from East to West.
In the Chinese zodiac, the rabbit is the fourth animal of the twelve, and it symbolizes elegance, longevity, intelligence, and good fortune. In celebrating the year of the rabbit, we are highlighting some of the rabbit artworks on .ART users’ websites.
